Crystal Pistil - unisex fragrance

Crystal Pistil by D.S. & Durga is a new aquatic floral fragrance for women and men. This "fragrance enhancer" encourages perfume layering, but is a solid stand-alone scent as well. Notes of orange blossoms, petal dew and pink pepper blend into crystal floral parts, paradisone, and jasmine water resting on a base of civettone, white musk, and ambrette seed for a transparent crystallized floral water perfume. This soft aroma was launched in 2020 and is available in an eau de parfum spray.

D.S. & Durga Crystal Pistil - new fragrance details

Add transparent orange blossom water, crystalline flower parts, and dew to any fragrance (or just rock it solo).

Enhancers are a fun way to make transparent fragrances that can be worn alone or layered with whatever someone else is digging at the moment. I wanted to make a soft crystalline perfume that highlighted the humid parts inside of a flower. My muse, so to speak, was a memory of orange blossom water liberally sprinkled in the air upon entering a market on the back streets of Fez in Morocco. Orange Blossom water is shockingly inviting - like the smell of fresh baked bread. I always wished the water could be worn like a perfume but it doesn't last (it's the secret ingredient I use in my famous - with my kids - pancakes). And the oil you extract from the flower, though lovely, doesn't have the same balmy water vibe. Crystal Pistil my attempt to make that fresh humid flower note last and last in all its crystal glory.
